    - Nathan, uber soundtrack lover.

    hey all, i've been collecting soundtraqcks for many years fav tracks being those that have a sad/meloncholy tone. i've got soundtracks stretching from lord of the rings to white squall...a ton...however i am starting to run out of new soundtracks to find...(every movie i ever watch now, im listening to the score)...anyone able to assist? any soundtracks or songs you think i may have missed? (if its like a mainstream movie...something like gladiator, last samurai, or LOTR......i got probably stuff that comes out of less-known flicks, or b-movies...or just stuff you think is so good you need to share it ^.^) Some people have actually given my some tracks from anime cartoons which were absolutely 'superb'...some more of those would be AWESOME ^.^
    Examples of a few (just to give you a flavor of what i mean):
    - the way of the sword 2nd half- last samurai ost
    - coffey on the mile- green mile ost
    - end titles- lady in the water ost
    - now we are free 2nd half- gladiator ost
    - coryhinus (something like that)- batman begins ost

    Thanks all, looking forward to hearing your ideas and opinions ^.^

    Jussumdude--don't know if you're checking back at all, but here are some good ones:

    Eleni Karaiandrou--Ulysses' Gaze ost. The 10th track is a nice suite of laments, but the whole disc is pretty sad.
    Michael Kamen--Iron Giant ost. "No Following"
    Akira Senju--The Mystery of Rampo ost. Love Theme, Main Titles
    Ennio Morricone--Once Upon a Time in America theme, Gabriel's Oboe from The Mission
    Clint Mansell--Requiem for a Dream ost. Winter: Lux Aeterna
    Anne Dudley--American History X ost. Benedictus, Two Brothers--a lot of this soundtrack is lush sad strings work.

    One that isn't a soundtrack, but has the kind of Thin Red Line strings you're looking for is John Tavener's Tears of the Angels.

    There's also Chevaliers de Sangreal by Hans Zimmer (The Da Vinci Code) which I'm almost sure you're gonna like.

    A few additional suggestions

    These are all wonderful suggestions. A few others that may fit the bill of sad or at least reflective:

    Ice Dance - Edward Scissorhands (Danny Elfman)
    Carol Anne's Theme - End Credits - Poltergeist (Jerry Goldsmith)
    Rain in Venice - Brideshead Revisited (Geoffrey Burgeon)
    Sunrise - Stay Gold - The Outsiders (Carmine Coppola/Bill Hughes)
    Ballroom Suite - Witches of Eastwicke (John Williams)

    And if you really want to suffocate in the throes of realizing that time is fleeting and we're all here only a few brief seconds, and how magical your past has been and if you want to experience that almost child-like wonder of wanting to go back in time:
    Peggy Sue's Homecoming - Peggy Sue Got Married (John Barry)
    And of course, almost any track from Somewhere in Time, also by Barry.
